This is the week that buds

High temps and early rain awoke the sleeping giant.  I've been watching this tree since New Years.  This week out came the buds. Next week they will be leaves.

Speaking of buds, this is my grandson Cody.  I've been watching him always and I call him Bud. I did this painting from a vine charcoal drawing from an earlier time.

I did a charcoal sketch of Rhonda and painted it on an oil primed surface. This is the first of many paintings I want to do of her. 4"x6" oils on board.
